[laughter] >> eye in i am the well-known tweeter. six months ago, we had a session here almost to the day, that was a preview of the redistricting session. today we are going to take stock of how that process is unfolding and with what consequences we can detect at least now. why do people pay so much attention to redistricting? a good question. first of all, it is a fascinating game. political junkies simply can't resist. we can start talking about it the midterm election before and continue on for years after as we try to discern the consequences of it. but more importantly there are gentlemanly high stakes involved in redis
of politics? that is the question. david brooks, a conservative -- i repeat, conservative columnist for the new "new york times," hs hired for that reason, that usually liberal editorial page, they wanted someone who wrote well and was a certified conservative. david brooks is who they chose. david brooks believes that, it's obviously turned into the ideological paerl that walks -- party that walks away from compromise for the sake of politics. this is what he said yesterday about the logical and ideological republican party that has emerged. here's what he said -- and i quote -- "if the debt ceiling talks fail, independent voters will see the democrats are willing to compromise, but republicans were not. if we default, he said, it will be the fault of republican fanatacism." that fanatacism is making compromise impossible, no matter how much democrats are willing to give. independent voters, brooks says -- and i quote -- "will conclude that republicans are not fit to govern, and they will be right." end of quote. david brooks, conservative columnist, said this. the republican party

is that at what -- who knew in the paper and when did they know it? rebecca brooks, who used to be editor of news of the world, says she didn't know anything about it. this kind of, you know, is somewhat questionable. but there's a political implication to all of this, which makes it even more complicated and in a way more scandalous. brooks is a great friend of the camera. the last editor of the news of the world before brooks became prime minister camera's spokesman. he then resigned under mysterious circumstances. as all this is coming out, seems perhaps the circumstances may not be so mysterious. so the question of who knows and who knew then is kind of key to the whole thing. however, my feeling is that somehow it won't end up being as revealing as we all thought, because too many political implications here. >> i wish we had 10 more minutes to speak with you. unfortunately, our time is fleeting. it is now out of time. but i appreciate you coming in. this is not at all dead. so hopefully we'll see you again. >> sure. >> tony, over to you. >>> thank you, much. 8:23now. the military's don't as
